‘Complete lack of focus’: lawmaker on mission to force Pentagon to take UFOs seriously http://howtooccupy.org/complete-lack-of-focus-lawmaker-on-mission-to-force-pentagon-to-take-ufos-seriously/ Sat, 25 Sep 2021 18:37:24 +0000 http://howtooccupy.org/complete-lack-of-focus-lawmaker-on-mission-to-force-pentagon-to-take-ufos-seriously/ The provision, which was passed Thursday as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, requires the new office to be established within 180 days.

The provision, which was passed Thursday as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, requires the new office to be established within 180 days.

Its main task will be “to synchronize and standardize the collection, reporting and analysis of incidents involving unidentified aerial phenomena across the Ministry of Defense”, according to the legislation.

The provision, now to be passed by the Senate, also says the military should try to determine whether the NAPs have any links to foreign adversaries, including “non-state actors”, and whether they could pose a threat. .

There have been an increasing number of reports in recent years of Navy pilots and other military personnel of highly advanced craft of unknown origin violating protected airspace, some of them maneuvering from a way that seems to challenge known aerodynamics.

The revelations sparked a series of classified briefings to members of Congress. A public report that was required in last year’s intelligence bill concluded in a “preliminary assessment” in June that the military and intelligence agencies do not have enough information to draw conclusions. farms on more than 100 reported PSU sightings, some of which “appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

Assistant Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks at the time called on military branches and other organizations to recommend “process improvements” to collect and analyze this data and “develop a plan to formalize the mission.”

But it is not certain that all military leaders understood the message. Last month Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall said he was not convinced UAPs were a serious enough problem to demand his attention.

“I don’t see this as an imminent threat to the United States or the human race, these phenomena are happening,” he said in response to a question from POLITICO. “I should see evidence that this was something worthy of the attention of the US Air Force as a threat.”

“Our job is to protect the United States from threats,” Kendall added. “I have a lot of known threats that we are working very hard against to protect the United States from. I would like to focus on those. However, he said that” if we are asked to do it, we will. ” .

But Gallego insists the attitude must change.

Its amendment to the Defense Policy Bill requires that the new Pentagon office, which would replace a temporary UAP Task Torce established last year, develop “processes and procedures to ensure that such incidents from every military department are reported and integrated into a centralized repository “.

This means that data gleaned from a variety of intelligence-gathering tools, including satellites, wiretaps and human spies, stipulates the legislation.

“I decided to put words to the action,” said Gallego. “We had a briefing on this phenomenon. One of the things that came out of that briefing, without breaking too many walls here, was that it just needed better data collection. There should be standardized data collection across all departments. “

Pentagon spokeswoman Susan Gough told POLITICO on Saturday that “planning an activity to take over from the [task force] the mission is in progress. “

Not everyone is convinced that Gallego’s efforts will make significant inroads, especially if the new office does not have adequate resources and access to all relevant and in some top-secret intelligence programs that may contain relevant information.

A former senior US intelligence official who lobbied for more attention to NAPs said the real challenge will be getting spy agencies and the military to share what they have. An office tasked with collecting and analyzing data can only be successful if the person who manages it has the power to force cooperation.

“It is encouraging to see serious interest expressed,” said Christopher Mellon, a former deputy defense assistant secretary for intelligence who also served on the staff of the Senate Intelligence Committee. However, he said a Pentagon member “is unable to lead a multi-agency effort to identify the most useful signatures for monitoring NAPs or developing or implementing a collection plan. C ‘ is mostly what is missing. “

He said that “a good alternative would be for Congress to ask the Secretary of Defense to identify a 4-star level official responsible for the UAP issue” and to “implement an effective collection and recovery program. to analyse”.

“This is the only way to determine the origin and the capabilities of these vehicles,” he added.

Gallego insists, however, that another goal of creating a permanent intelligence-gathering effort is to make sure the military feel comfortable coming forward if they experience something they don’t. can not explain.

“We had to continue to remove the stigma attached to reporting these phenomena,” said Gallego. “There are a lot of people who are afraid to report this because they are afraid… it is going to cost their careers. People think they are crazy.”

Only by reducing stigma, he said, will more useful data become available. “We won’t be able to get to the bottom of it unless we collect information, get enough information to understand exactly what is going on. [and] the pilots and others who have seen it feel very comfortable talking about it. “

It also just means dismissing some of the more fantastic theories: “So if you capture one of these huge weather balloons and think it was an unidentified object, it’s important that we understand… why it caused a reaction. to a radar, ”Gallego said.

The congressman said he was not personally too worried about the potential political fallout of being associated with an issue that had long been on the fringes.

“Look, I’m from Arizona, I even lived a bit in New Mexico. Very far from Roswell, but still,” Gallego joked, referring to one of the most legendary places in a world. alleged alien crash in UFO lore. “Part of my job is to decrease the stigma of talking about this, especially for military personnel. If that means I have to take it a bit on the chin, so be it.”

Then there’s the other stigma, sort of: the lingering belief among much of the public that the government is covering up what it knows about UFOs.

“There’s a lot of misinformation, a lot of misinformation and we just have to be professional about it and really get to the heart of what’s going on,” Gallego said.

He admitted that he thinks the government has more information than it does not share. But he says he doesn’t think it hides the whole story either.

“I don’t think we have enough information to be honest, for us to know whether or not we need to worry,” he said. “That’s why I’m trying to structurally pull this together, so that we can actually collect data and treat it as a scientific and military objective rather than… some wacky conspiracy theorists.”

The next step he is considering is to hold public hearings. “I definitely thought about the hearings,” he said.

But first, there needs to be more data collected and shared.

“An audience without a real understanding of what is going on, without real data, will do no one good,” said Gallego. “Maybe for the world of Twitter, so they can talk about it. But that’s not our job. Our job is not to be artists. Our job is to create solutions where there is. has a problem. And we don’t even know if we have a problem until we actually collect data. “

“It’s good for us to say that we don’t know what’s going on, so let’s try to figure it out,” he added. “It’s not a bad thing in government. The only way to really do it is to try to understand it if you really want to understand it.”

Southern Nevada Health District COVID-19 Update – Southern Nevada Health District http://howtooccupy.org/southern-nevada-health-district-covid-19-update-southern-nevada-health-district/ Fri, 24 Sep 2021 23:42:27 +0000 http://howtooccupy.org/southern-nevada-health-district-covid-19-update-southern-nevada-health-district/ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released updated guidelines recommending booster doses of the Pfizer vaccine for people at higher risk of COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released updated guidelines recommending booster doses of the Pfizer vaccine for people at higher risk of COVID-19. At this time, booster doses are only available for people who have received the Pfizer vaccine. The CDC recommends that the following groups receive booster doses at least six months after completing their two-dose series of Pfizer vaccine:

  • people 65 years of age and over and residents of long-term care facilities,
  • people aged 50 to 64 with underlying medical conditions,
  • people aged 18 to 49 with underlying health problems may receive a reminder based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18 to 64 who are at increased risk of exposure and transmission to COVID-19 due to their professional or institutional environment may receive a booster injection based on their individual benefits and risks.

The process of starting to offer vaccines to larger groups involves several steps. Booster doses at the Southern Nevada Health District will be available for newly recommended groups when these steps are completed. Once the vaccine is available to larger groups, the health district will make an announcement and the information will be available on its website at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine. The health district vaccine website has been updated to include a feature that allows people to sort clinic listings by zip code.

The health district continues to stress the importance of getting vaccinated to slow the spread of the virus and stop the pandemic. COVID-19 vaccines are very effective in protecting people against serious illness, hospitalizations and death, including illnesses caused by Delta and other variants circulating in Clark County.

Third dose

The third doses of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines continue to be available to people who are immunocompromised and who have completed the two-dose series of vaccines. For people in this group, the third doses of the vaccine can be given 28 days after their second dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. Additional doses of the vaccine for people who are immunocompromised are not available for people who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and CDC do not yet have enough data to do so. the same recommendations.

Vaccine update

As of September 24, more than 74% of people 18 years and older in Clark County have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 69.9% of those eligible (people 12 and older plus) have also received at least one dose of the vaccine. In addition, more than 62% of adults in Clark County are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Clark County is 2,469,068. Additional vaccination information is available at www.snhd.info/covid-cases.

COVID-19 after vaccination

As of September 23, the health district has received reports of 9,729 fully vaccinated people testing positive for COVID-19. This represents 90 cases out of 10,000 fully vaccinated people. The health district is reporting a total of 146 deaths in fully vaccinated Clark County residents. This represents 1 death in 10,000 people who are fully vaccinated. By comparison, the case rate is 50 deaths per 10,000 unvaccinated people.

No vaccine is 100 percent effective, and major infections among those vaccinated are expected. Since vaccines are not 100% effective, as the number of fully vaccinated people increases, so will the number of breakthrough cases.

The health district’s weekly report on COVID-19 infections after vaccination includes additional information, including trends. The full report is available at www.snhd.info/covid-breakthrough

Variants

The variants of the virus that cause COVID-19 are tracked by the Health District, across the United States, and around the world by public health organizations. The virus that causes COVID-19 is constantly evolving, and the best way to reduce the spread and slow the emergence of new variants is to get vaccinated. More information on variants, including classifications and definitions, is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/variants/index.html .

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the CDC continues to learn about the variants. Recently, the CDC reclassified the way it reports variants as: Monitored Variants (VBM), which can include variants previously referred to as Variants of Interest (VOI) or Variants of Concern (VOC) and High Consequence Variants (VOHC) ).

As of September 23, the Health District is reporting the following Variants Under Surveillance (VBM) in Clark County:

Variant under surveillance To count Percent
Alpha 940 59.8
Beta 9 0.6
Epsilon 228 14.5
Gamma 229 14.6
Eta 0 0.0
Iota 72 4.6
Kappa 0 0.0
Lambda 5 0.3
Mu 90 5.7
Total 1573 100.0

As of September 23, the health district is reporting the following variant of concern (VOC) in Clark County:

Worrisome variant To count Percent
Delta 5426 98.0
Delta Plus 109 2.0
Total 5535 100.0

Over the past 30 days, the health district has identified the following variants in Clark County:

Variant To count Percent
Alpha 0 0.0
Beta 0 0.0
Delta 571 99.5
Delta Plus 3 0.5
Epsilon 0 0.0
Gamma 0 0.0
Total 574 100.0

Clinic locations

The location of the screening and vaccination clinic is updated regularly and available on the COVID-19 website of the health district. A COVID-19 testing schedule with locations is available at www.snhd.info/covid-testing. More information on the locations of community vaccination sites can be found at NVCOVIDFighter.org. The site also offers live chat support to make scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment and obtaining vaccine information more accessible.

Salmon lesson

Josh Mills is giving me a lesson in salmon. Here is the funny thing. Did you know that salmon and rainbow trout migrate backwards. They therefore face upstream during their migration, the juveniles on their way to the sea. They swim backwards. They work their way through the system. So a trip that previously took more than a week now takes a month and a half or more, depending on the water temperature. And then they’re just ripped off one by one by these enhanced predator situations. I just think these are the hardiest species. We did everything to try to screw them up and give them a shit chance. And then you look and you go, they’re still there. They are still fighting against it. I mean, the water temperatures in the 70s right now and they’re still pushing upstream. This desire to replace oneself is endless. What if we got out of their stinking path! You also look at the economic impact of fishing and things like that. There is a place at the end of the road where the Grand Ronde jumps into the Serpent. This is called the hellebore, a very famous place for salmon and rainbow trout, very big for rainbow trout fishing. And you want to know what the economics of sport fishing could be like in a good year. You are having a good year. This large, massive corner lot is laden with hundreds and thousands of dollars in boats and trailers, RVs, and everything that comes with good fishing. And you talk about economic impact. It’s incredible. If only we could start all over again.

Spiny lobster recreational season opens on October 2

California lobster recreational season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 6 a.m. and continue through March 16, 2022. Last year’s season has been particularly active, likely driven by residents looking for of outdoor activity opportunities during COVID-19 lockdowns.

“We had a record number of sales of lobster report cards during the 2020-2021 lobster fishing season,” said Jenny Hofmeister, marine environment scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW ). “Typically around 33,000 ballots are purchased each season, but almost 46,000 were purchased last season. More than half of them were new lobster hunters.

The season opening weekend is one of the busiest times on the water, as thousands of lobster and hoop net divers flock to their favorite lobster fishing spot. Before you get out on the water, make sure you know all the applicable regulations.

“No one can attempt to catch lobster before 6 am on October 2. This includes baiting your hoop net or grabbing lobsters with your hand before 6 am,” said CDFW captain Eric Kord. “With a sunrise around 6:45 am on the morning of the opening, that means there will be a very short window of time to legally catch lobster in the dark, when most of the lobsters are out.”

A lobster report card is required for all people who fish for lobster, and people 16 years of age or older must have a valid sport fishing license and oceans enhancement stamp. Gillnetters and divers must fill in the date, location and type of gear just before fishing. When you have finished fishing, or when you change location or gear type, you should immediately record the number of lobsters kept there. Last season, over 54,000 lobster trips were reported, with an average catch of about two lobsters retained per trip. This average has remained relatively stable since 2008. Almost half of reported trips took place in the first month of the season, and eight percent of all reported trips took place on opening day with divers and divers. gillnetters retaining nearly 11,000 lobsters.

Lobster reporting sheets must be returned or submitted online to CDFW at the end of each season by April 30, regardless of whether the sheet has been used or if lobsters have been caught. If you are completing one lobster reporting sheet, you can purchase another, but you must report the catches on each sheet you purchase. Failure to report all lobster report cards by the reporting deadline will result in a non-report fee of $ 21.60 when purchasing a lobster report card next season.

Lobster Report Cards can be purchased online. Newsletters cannot be printed at home, which is why the CDFW recommends waiting 15 days for the newsletter to reach you in the mail. Alternatively, lobster report cards can be purchased at participating sporting goods stores and other licensed licensing agents.

The daily bag and possession limit for lobster is seven. Any lobster kept must be at least 3 ¼ inches long, measured in a straight line on the center line of the back, from the trailing edge of the eye socket to the edge. rear of the carapace. Anyone who catches lobster must have a measuring device capable of accurately determining the legal length. A diagram illustrating this can be found on the CDFW website.

Lobster can only be caught with hoop nets or by hand. No other device (such as spears or poles) may be used. A person may not have more than five hoop nets when taking lobster or crab from a boat, and no more than 10 hoop nets may be possessed on board a vessel, regardless of the number of people on board. When using hoop nets on piers, jetties, or other shore structures, only two hoop nets can be used.

When fishing for lobster, please check the Ocean Sport Fishing interactive web map of the California Coast to make sure you are not fishing in prohibited waters.

“It is extremely important that fishermen know the location and regulations of each Marine Protected Area (MPA) near where they will be fishing,” said Captain Kord. “Unfortunately, every year many citations are issued to lobster fishermen, divers and gillnetters, for illegal capture in an MPA.”

The complete lobster regulations are contained in the 2021-2022 Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations booklet. Further information on the biology, fisheries and management of California lobster is available on the CDFW Marine Species Portal.

At tense Blinken meeting, ‘Havana syndrome’ diplomats complain of skepticism http://howtooccupy.org/at-tense-blinken-meeting-havana-syndrome-diplomats-complain-of-skepticism/ Tue, 21 Sep 2021 19:19:00 +0000 http://howtooccupy.org/at-tense-blinken-meeting-havana-syndrome-diplomats-complain-of-skepticism/ WASHINGTON – US diplomats suffering from unexplained ‘Havana Syndrome’ used a tense meeting with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month to express growing dismay at the lingering stigma and disbelief within the US government about their injuries, more than four years after the incidents began.

WASHINGTON – US diplomats suffering from unexplained ‘Havana Syndrome’ used a tense meeting with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month to express growing dismay at the lingering stigma and disbelief within the US government about their injuries, more than four years after the incidents began.

When first meeting with the cohort of affected State Department employees in Cuba and China, Blinken spent over an hour reassuring and answering questions, with most of the affected employees joining remotely by telephone. His message: We must believe in those who are suffering, and that the administration is doing everything possible to investigate and provide care.

Yet the assurance of America’s top diplomat contrasted starkly with the profound challenges affected diplomats say they still face to get proper medical care, assessment and benefits – and skepticism about their injuries, they say. , is omnipresent even among certain high places. senior government officials.

“It’s just incredibly sad. It’s the worst part of the bureaucracy, “said one of the diplomats, describing the call as” the same as so many other phone calls “where they are made aware of the protocols in place to ensure proper treatment.” C is so infuriating because these protocols are not in place – not the way they think they are. “

NBC News spoke to more than half a dozen people who participated in the September 10 appeal. They described a yawning gulf between the government’s official, public message and the real situation, and said the administration’s refusal to label the incidents as “attacks” fuels the continued skepticism of their colleagues.

In 2017, when the incidents in Cuba first came to light, the Trump administration described them as “targeted attacks.” But in recent years, the government has stopped calling them attacks, with the Biden administration preferring the term “unexplained health incidents” or UHI.

Several people with Havana Syndrome in Cuba or China said the State Department’s Office of Medical Services initially told them their symptoms were due to stress, or attributed their cognitive symptoms to just getting older.

“It is these kinds of sickening statements that perpetuate this disbelief,” said one of the diplomats, adding that staff members fully understood that the government could not share with them all the details of the investigation. “We understand, this is classified information. But if you see things, don’t act like it’s nothing happened. Don’t call them creepy UHIs. Don’t talk about our stress levels.

Others described facing an endless chain of bureaucratic hurdles that they said prevented them from obtaining benefits permitted by recent legislation to combat Havana Syndrome, such as lost wages for workers whose brain injuries forced them to retire early or prevented them from advancing professionally.

A senior State Department official, answering questions about Blinken’s call with diplomats, admitted there was “frustration” within the group over perceived stigma or lack of empathy from their colleagues, but said this does not extend to those at the top.

“This is certainly not the case with the secretary and senior management,” the official said in an interview. “Everyone takes it seriously as a real problem that affects people with real symptoms. “

In an effort to defuse skepticism, several US agencies, including the State Department and the Pentagon, have encouraged their employees to report any worrying incidents or symptoms to be assessed. Last month, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a rare public statement describing the intensification of the investigation as a “top priority” and pledging to support those affected “to make sure they are believed, heard. and respected ”.

Since 2017, at least 200 diplomats, spies and other U.S. government employees have come forward to report potential symptoms of what officials believe are the most likely directed energy attacks, possibly using microwave technology. The first incidents discovered took place in Havana, but subsequent incidents occurred on all continents except Antarctica, including cases in the United States.

At the end of last month, suspected incidents in Vietnam just before Vice President Kamala Harris’ planned visit caused her to delay her trip by several hours. On Monday, NBC News reported that a CIA official traveling with CIA Director William Burns to India this month reported symptoms and was undergoing treatment.

Some of the workers reported hearing strange sounds, high or low, or feeling strange sensations before developing symptoms, including cognitive and memory problems, problems with balance, and hearing and visual changes. Doctors hired by the US government to treat them have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury.

Yet more than four years after the U.S. government began investigating, the intelligence community still has not formally identified a cause or culprit.

The Biden administration, which inherited the unresolved investigation in January, has appointed a senior White House National Security Council official to oversee the response, which now includes new task forces involving scientific and medical experts who have access to classified information.

“It’s confusing and confusing to anyone working on this that we haven’t been able to determine the cause or attribution,” the senior State Department official said. “The ‘attacks’ imply that we know what happened and what caused it and imply that there is a state actor. Obviously, this is the theory that people have not been excluded or excluded. “

Some of the first diplomats affected in Cuba received official letters from the FBI saying they had been the victims of a crime, awards from the Secretary of State for being injured in the line of duty, or both.

But the FBI, which traveled to Havana several times to investigate, later released a report that found no evidence of an attack and determined that the staff were most likely suffering from a psychogenic illness. mass or mass hysteria. Diplomats bristled that the FBI did not directly interview the diplomats concerned.

During the September 10 appeal, when Blinken asked how the department could reduce skepticism, at least one diplomat encouraged the State Department to publicly refute the report.

Diplomats told NBC News they were dismayed Ambassador Pamela Spratlen, asked by the Biden administration to oversee the State Department’s response, refused to conclusively rule out the hysteria theory of mass.

“The FBI study is the one I actually read,” she told diplomats, according to the appeal’s notes. “We know not many people refer to it now, but we have heard what you have said about it and we have your point of view, and we will certainly take that into account when we think about the next steps to address this issue.”

A diplomat on the call described this response as “invalid and reckless”. Another said that Spratlen “was saying very clearly that she did not rule out that we are crazy”.

“In the end, we interrupted Spratlen to try to get people in” to speak, a third diplomat said on the call. “It was ugly.”
